IT has been a busy week for Anna’s Hope fundraisers in Stamford.

Anna’s Hope fairies were out in force rattling buckets on Saturday at the Queen tribute concert in Burghley Park.

The thousands of people who attended the show generously filled the fairies’ buckets with more than £1,500.

The money will go towards helping families with children who have brain tumours.

Founder of the charity Carole Hughes said: “We really appreciated the support of the crowd and also the band.

“I would also like to thank Live Promotions who staged the concert and for their continued support of Anna’s Hope.”

Staff at O2 in St Paul’s Street, Stamford, used pedal power to raise money for charity on Friday.

A team of seven took it in turns to pedal non-stop on an exercise bike for a total of 24 hours during the working day.

They are hoping to raise about £400 which will be split between O2’s own charity Think Big and Stamford charity Anna’s Hope.

Assistant manager Emily-Jane Flatters said: “We are doing three hours and 40 minutes each, holding a cake sale and a raffle to raise money.

“Cakes and raffle tickets are £1 each and people can win anything from a new phone or accessories to a box of chocolates.

“We wanted to raise money for a local charity and Anna’s Hope seemed like the perfect one.”

The cakes were all home made by Ashleigh Scott and the staff were expecting to have completed their challenge by close of business on Saturday.

There is still time to raise money for the charity by making yourself a model for a day.

Anna’s Hope has teamed up with modelling agency Ingrid & Symi and Michael John Hair Artwork to offer people advice on a modelling career and teach them the tricks of the trade.

The event is taking place at The Haycock Hotel, Wansford, on July 1 from 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 5pm. It costs £20 per person.
